J’Atelier9/J’A9 (@jatelier9) emerged after its Los Angeles based visionary founder, Janine Tang, began her movement towards a circular economy by sourcing recycled repurposed salvaged materials into her fine arts.

J’A9 reshapes the transcendent beauty of innovative repurposing & recycling.. allowing her art to become the vessel. She juxtaposes the dichotomy of consumerism against salvaged adaptive reuses of recycling.

Many of the selectively curated eco-conscious materials utilized into her works have an inherent patina, imperfection, and rawness. Her environmental responsibility is commingled into her narrative. Artisanally combined, they merge into an insightful tapestry of ethereal, whimsical, and sustainability.

J’A9 translates the interconnectedness of the world through her works by highlighting society’s sensation of media, global discourse, planet preservation, glorification of materialism, technological dependence, joyous memories, natural habitat, fashion lifestyle, human experiences, and complex facets of duplicity. 

She dissects aspects of life through societal conditioning and programming within the matrix, while also creating a wondrous majestic world of optimism and reflection.

SOCIETAL MATRIX embodies expansive hues of colors in the expressive works highlighting the ever present matrix. The narrative seeks to evaluate programming, messaging, conditioning, and communication within interconnections of every life source. 

The purpose, construction, design, and deconstruction of each fragment serve as pieces of the powerful matrix and observation of the mastermind.

This collection of works illuminates shifting components dissecting pop culture, environmental discourse, and cautionary exploitation within society's matrix.
